that gave him more latitude with the conservative base of the party. >> woodruff: speak of boston, and other places, let's hear now from our colleagues-- actually, ray suarez is in chicago. he and margaret warner are at the two presidential campaign headquarters, but, ray, we're going to come to you first. are you in chicago, and that's where president obama is tonight. >> that's right. he's just a few miles away. he's not here yet. and neither are a lot of the senior officials from the campaign. i think they probably want to waito see a little bit more, but illinois senior senator, senator dick durbin is here, and there have been a lot of poll closings, a lot of projections, but so far no surprises. what do you need to see before you can really relax? >> some of the key battled ground states-- florida, virginia, ohio, and of course when we get in the midwest, a little closer to my activity in the last few months for the president, taking a look at wis cons and i know iowa. if we can get the job done in the midwest, and i hope we do glie you're not up thisickle. whn you don't have a race, wh
's start with rita williams live in boston. that's where mitt romney's campaign is planning for a victory party. >> reporter: party planners have had to plan for any eventity, a tie, a win, or a loss. if there's a loss, they will turn the lights down real low and that confetti will, will you probably never see it. >> i'm just going to get the regular quarter pounder, without cheese. and a baked potato. >> now, mitt romney may not be very hungry tonight. and one of his last campaign stops today, he and his runningmate paul ryan ordered fast food in cleveland in that important battleground state of ohio. polls show president obama had the tinyist of lead going into this election day. >> i expect it to be more tired. given the number of events and hours and i think i got energy for the people that i spent time with, whether at the rope line or the rallies. when you have ten thousand people cheering you, you get a real boost from it. >> now, let me show you this video. the plane carrying mitt romney landed here in boston. and the governor had just returned from that swing from a day of campa
our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
, nancy. jan crawford has been covering the romney campaign. she is in boston tonight. jan? >> well, scott, governor romney just landed here about an hour ago after making campaign stops in that key state of ohio and in pennsylvania. he talked to reporters on the way back on the plane and he said he felt good about this campaign. they hadn't left anything in the locker room and that he thinks they're going to win. he said he just finished his victory speech. he's not written a concession speech. now, the mood inside the campaign tonight, scott, is one of cautious optimism, i'd say. but there is a little bit of nervousness and here's why: campaign sources that i'm talking with tonight say they are encouraged by the high numbers of republican turnout they're seeing in these swing states like ohio, florida, virginia. they believe that will outperform john mccain in 2008. that's the key to this election. they really had to run up the score in those areas. but here's where the nervousness comes in. they're also seeing some of the president's turnout in some of those democratic areas like in nor

are in boston. he will also campaign in ohio and pennsylvania, a state that hasn't voted for a republican presidential nominee since george bush senior, back in '88. what does that tell you? is that a hail mary backup in case he loses ohio or just worth a try since he's in the neighborhood or does he think he really has a chance? >> it depends on who you ask, anderson. clearly the polls have tightened up in pennsylvania. they took a look at it, when you talk to the folks in the romney campaign they say listen, we have spent the money, we need to spend in all these battleground states that john was talking about. all of our resources that we can put in there are there. we are up on the air as much as we can be. there's no more room for ads on tv in all these battleground states and they took a look at pennsylvania and said first of all, it's right next door to ohio so not like they have to go across the country to go there. plus more than 90% of pennsylvanians will vote on election day. there's no early voting in pennsylvania. absentees, you have to meet a certain criteria so the vast majo
at the boston convention center. i talked to a top campaign aide, he said they were feeling confident. they like what they're seeing in their internal polls. now it's just all about which of these candidates' supporters are most intense and most enthusiastic and how many of them are going to turn out to vote today. >> jan crawford, thank you. president obama made his last campaign stops monday in wisconsin, ohio, and iowa. and after his final rally in des moines, the president spent the night in his hometown of chicago. nancy is there. good morning. >> reporter: the president is waking up in his own townhouse th morning, and unlike governor romney, he is staying put. no campaign stops. he'll play a traditional pickup basketball game with friends and aides, maybe drop by obama campaign headquarters to thank all of his staffers and volunteers. then tonight he will head to this convention center for what he hopes will be a victory party. on a clear, chilly night, president obama joined 20,000 supporters at the same corner in downtown des moines where he opened a small campaign office back in 2007.
will see him in chicago. mitt romney will be in boston tomorrow night. hoping for a different outcome than john mccain had four years ago at that sad rally in arizona. before romney gets to boston he will still be on the trail in ohio and in pennsylvania. before the nation renders a verdict on not just a president, but a presidency whose achievements have been seen as almost beside the point in assessing whether the president gets a second term, it's the virtue of this campaign or it's the damning criticism of this campaign to know that this decision has been set up for the american people as if it has very little to do with what this president has done with his last four years. it's not been about his record. it's been about a character kature of his record. and that's why that list of things that have happened in the past four years maybe seems unfamiliar. you'd think after a campaign this long, we could memorize that list, but that's not what it's been about. if barack obama gets a second term, given the achievements of this past four years, he will likely be enshrined as being one of t

boston exactly who to talk to. there is nothing like that in 2008. that being said, the obama campaign has increased the presence in virginia. we know from last night they put out a number that nationwide the have contacted voters around the country. if you take a look at virginia you have to imagine that a significant chunk or contact information in virginia. the ground game is going to be like nothing we have ever seen before. it'll be at the same level of what is happening in ohio for florida. i saw people walking with the obama for americas sticker. you heard governor mcdonald's is a they're not taking him for granted. reminded that they need to vote. get them to the polls. these are places that have legitimate early voting. more than half of the voters are voting ahead of time. there is in person absentee voting. anybody can do it if they want to. there is a pretty lengthy list of specific standards that you need in order to vote absentee. the majority of this will be done on election day. >> what and on the numbers. what are the latest polls? >> i look at all these polls and a sw
